via Trump budget plan to seek $23B for border security, $200B for infrastructure spending – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Feb 12 (Reuters) – President Donald Trump will unveil his second budget on Monday – seeking to make good on his promise to bolster military spending and requesting funds for infrastructure, construction of a wall along the border with Mexico and opioid treatment programs.
